Phantasmak did a very nice post in Greek the other day on the situation in Greece (and elsewhere) about the anti-americanism that’s brewing there. Many will argue that the American Government is the bad guy and that always has been, but usually things are not so black and white. Americans are not innocent in the world political and military scene. But they aren’t as guilty as most people want them to be either.
And in the case of Greece, the TV, print & Radio media there makes things worse as they are not objective at all. They never were, ever, about any topic. Every news agency has a political agenda there. This is one of the reasons why I consider Greece to still be in the middle ages: their media has f*cked up the people’s minds throughout the last 60 years. I love Greece, but I can never go back there to live an every day life. I had nothing in common with most of the people there when I used to live there. I was always the black sheep at school or our social circle for being outspoken and standing up for what’s right rather than what the society has come to expect from a young female.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some enlighted Greek people alright. But these are leaving Greece for other countries soon enough, and all what’s left in Greece are the idiots. And when you have a country full of idiots, it can’t go very far. At best, the intelligent people today in Greece, are the minority.
